Fundraising dinner for Airlie’s Heart of the Reef campaign
TOURISM organisation SKAL is continuing the Airlie Beach – Heart of the Reef campaign and is holding a fundraising dinner this Friday night, July 19.
The fundraiser will be a progressive dinner starting at Cactus Jack’s at 6.30pm for canapes/entrees, then moving across to Mangrove Jacks around 7.30pm – 8pm for all you can eat pizza and dessert.
There will be an auction following the dinner with prizes including a cocktail party to be hosted at your house valued at $1500, an Air Whitsunday panoramic tour valued at $950 and a Cruise Whitsunday’s trip to the reef valued at $549.
The majority of the funds raised will go towards the ongoing campaign including billboards for the Bruce High- way as well as other ideas including signage at the Whitsunday Coast Airport.
Skal Whitsundays is also hosting the organisation’s national Assembly in town for the first time in September and some of the money will go towards supporting that initiative.
Delegates from Skal clubs all around Australia will come to Airlie Beach for the assembly and will attend a welcome cocktail party and a gala dinner on Daydream Island.
It is expected to attract about 100 delegates.
The cost of Friday night’s fundraiser is $45 per person which includes the dinner and a welcome drink upon arrival. Bookings are essential and can be made by calling the Airlie Beach Hotel on 4964 1999.
